“You’ve always said mom and I were a gift from God. You never told me what really happened, Why?” “I was afraid that they might take you away from me.” Based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, ‘So B. It’ Heidi is a twelve-year-old girl with a mentally disabled mother, but who is otherwise extremely lucky. She is taken care of by her agoraphobic next-door neighbor, Bernadette, at whose door the two appeared when Heidi was about a week old.
“I’m not psychic, it isn’t anything fancy like ESP, I’m just lucky. Bernie has always told me that I should only use my luck for a good reason.” “Don’t abuse your gift.” “What about wanting to know if you have a family out there somewhere. Is that a good enough reason?” Some Families are a Little Different. Some Questions Needs Answers.
“Does momma have a mother?” “Everybody’s got a mother.” “Where is she then?” “That’s another question entirely.” Some Journeys Must Be Taken. Heidi travels alone by bus from Reno, Nevada to Liberty, New York to search for answers. She is assisted by strangers she meets on the way, and all the while she ponders the nature of truth, whether it is always knowable, and whether it is always worth knowing.
“A person has a right to know, they’re not supposed to guess who they are.” Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and written by Garry Williams, based on the 2004 novel of same name by Sarah Weeks. ‘So B. It’ stars Academy Award Nominee Alfre Woodard, Jacinda Barrett, John Heard, Jessica Collins, Cloris Leachman and Talitha Bateman. The heartwarming, coming-of-age story will be released in theaters on October 6, 2017.
